The 12.3-inch TFT display of the Audi virtual cockpit, depicts all the information in razor-sharp, brilliantly clear and high-contrast quality.
The system offers two basic views:
“Classic view”: The focus here is on the speedometer and rev counter, with the infotainment functions being more in the background.
“Infotainment mode”: The focus here is on additional information. The circular instrument dials are displayed significantly smaller.
This instrument panel puts everything directly in front of the driver’s eyes. The Audi virtual cockpit combines the functions of a central MMI monitor and conventional instrument cluster in one unique, 12.3-inch TFT display. All the functions and services are depicted using superb graphics with a 3D impression and detailed effects in brilliant clarity. At the same time, the driver has the choice of two views – the classic view or the “infotainment mode”.
The display differs depending on which option the driver selects. Whilst in classic view mode the circular instrument dials, i.e. the speedometer and rev counter, are more dominant, “infotainment mode” displays additional functions such as the navigation system, telephone, Audi connect and media more prominently. The displays for the outside temperature, time, mileage as well as warning and information symbols have a fixed position along the bottom edge of the cockpit in both modes.
